About Ian Anderson

This recently updated home has been a family treasure since my grandparents purchased it nearly 50 years ago.

Ian Anderson purchased this apartment in 1965

Why Ian Anderson chose West Beach

We grew up on California's central coast, and now make Santa Barbara our home. It is a wonderful place to live and we feel like we're vacationing in our own home town. This home is central to the Santa Ynez wine country, and just 90 minutes from Los Angeles.

Charming Spanish 1920s Duplex close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property, with tons of charm and character. Located just blocks from the beach, it is a very quiet, upstairs unit in a Spanish duplex in a residential neighborhood. Very clean, with a well stocked kitchen for cooking. We absolutely LOVED this rental and will be back again! The weather was suddenly warm and gorgeous, so we did not take advantage of the charming fireplace, but we were so happy it was there. Thank you for taking such good care of everything!

Great location, needs some TLC

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location to the beach and the nicer side of state street. The kitchen has been renovated and had everything we needed, but on arrival the dishwasher had food drips on the inside, as did the fridge. After a couple of days avoiding using them we ran a clean cycle which fixed it well. I think the house keepers just didn’t do a full job for a rental.

We could walk to all the best restaurants which was awesome.

What would bump this to a 5 star is fixing the bathroom which had a lot of mold in the wall of the shower, a large part of the paint was gone due to the mold. I realize this is always the challenge with an older property in a humid climate, but if you have mold or dust allergies it might be tough. Positive was the shower had great pressure.

The beds were very comfortable but on wood slates so every move was a creak. The carpet in the bedrooms could do with replacing, it looked much like a worn beach house. The floors were old and creaked with every step but that’s the character of an old home.

There was an outside area which we didn’t expect, but way too much bird poop to use.

All up an excellently location, it just needed a little help and a better clean. Even having the housekeepers sweep the outside steps would be great, there was a lot of sticks etc, more like the size of bird nests on them.

Great weekend get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Santa Barbara. The house is in a great location! Walking distance to many things (the beach, restaurants, bars, shops, etc). We didn’t have to use our car once. Ian was responsive and a great host. Highly recommend this spot.

Near the harbor and the beach

  • 5 of 5

West Beach is THE place to stay for easy access to walking, restaurants, shopping, the Funk zone and, of course, the beach. Ian and his family maintain the property and are always available, should you need any assistance.
